to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look

that will be the big story in they could end up with a pretty strong convention politically. michele obama was effective last night. bill clinton could be affected tonight. president obama is a good speaker. they will push this narrative. for the worst thing you can do is go back to the battle days. romney is just bush except he is even less sensitive to the middle class and more out of touch. thomas for the republicans did as much as they could to block than enough time. gerri: one quick question before we wrap this segment. you have probably seen these numbers, favorable impression among women voters. the president's numbers are not as high as they work. 49 percent. mitt romney 37%. what do you make of that? do you think the narrative that money is anti woman is working? i understand it was an anti -- pro abortion rally. sparsely attended down there. and try to figure out what it all means. >> i tell you what, i think this goes back to tampa because the democrats have been trying to make mitt romney into this terrible person, bad. this rich guy who does not care about women. you know wha

tonight. i've got to you if tonight is essentially afterglow from michelle obama's speech or is there a separate second night agenda for the democrats here leading up to the bill clinton speech? >> rachel, it looked for awhile there there were two versions of the democratic party. there was the clinton version and the barack obama version. that was a wrong perception a lot of us had. there are, in fact, two complimentary parts to the democratic party. the clinton part and the obama part. when they are together, it is a robust political party. when they are separated by division or bad feeling, they are not a strong political party. the clinton case has to come back for obama to win. it looks like it's coming back starting tonight. >> chris, are there any substantive differences between those two parts of the party you're talking about? any differences between clinton and obama that either need to be resolved or glossed over in order to make this sort of remarriage tonight work for the president? >> i don't know if it comes down to policy, but it certainly comes down to pol

the democrats had a more organized, more consistent message. they had better speakers. michelle obama, bill clinton, president obama did a better job making their case, selling their case to the american people. one other thing, though. that 47% remark governor romney made at that fund-raiser back in may that was released just last week, that's breaking through. i was in michigan last week. when you travel the country and talk to people, if you talk to pollsters they say it has hurt governor romney again on that fundamental question, who would best handle the economy and who represents your values. that has hurt. >> gloria, thank you. john king, thanks. >>> we got breaking news ahead on the program. for months, we have been reporting on charities that take your money and then n't deliver on their promises. tonight, the single largest fund-raising company in the world, quadriga art, will now have to answer questions from the u.s. senate about their financials. ome ♪ ♪ to look at [ sighs ] ♪ oh, he's shaggy ♪ and he eats like a hog [ male announcer ] the volkswagen jetta. available wi

at the democratic convention. we know that lots of folks saying michelle obama knocked it out of the park, bill clinton and obama obama were no slouches either, of course, so who other than someone named clinton or obama really impressed you? >> i think that one of the other speeches that really stuck out for me, and i know was a big hit at the convention and with folks around the country was our keynote speaker, the first latino ever for a dnc keynote speaker, julian castro. and he really, i think, impressed the crowd not just with his personal story, but with his argument about how his personal story was not just the quintessential american story, but it was a story that was possible only in this great country and that the opportunities that were available to him to make him successful are the opportunities that are at stake in this election and that it was obama's policies that he's put in place and will continue to put in place to make sure that that american dream that he is now fulfilling is going to be available to everybody, regardless of how much money you make, where you come from, wh

tough, isn't it, the public eye. if you are michelle obama or ann romney or whoever you are, kate middleton, doesn't really matter who you are or what country you're in, the amount of attention that female very high profile people get these days, it's pretty unbearable, isn't it? how do you deal with that generally? generally? >> well, i think -- i think it's very difficult because you are always -- you always worry so much. not really, i can't generalize. i worry so much. i worry what's going to be the backlash or what is it -- what -- am i looking right, not looking right? in fact, i am a very godmother. an independent woman, i'm a children's book author, and i'm striving to make a difference in education for children with my charitable causes. so i think the best thing you can do is strive on. keep your head held high, and have courage in your heart. and, you know, you can't go back. you just go forward and keep walking tall. >> you certainly have done that the last time you were on my show, i got very intrusive with you and asked you about your love life and you said the follo

remain the hope of the earth. >> first lady michelle obama and mitt romney were campaigning today in virginia. and with only 54 days until the election, we have a new nbc/"wall street journal"/marist poll of that state and two other crucial battleground states, florida and ohio. joining me now to take us through the numbers is nbc political director and host of nbc's "daily rundown," chuck todd. what do we have to know about this poll? >> part of me wants to call these states the iron triangle of the battleground, if you will. it feels like all of the ways to 270 all go through these three states first. but let me start in virginia. this is where the president is sitting at a five-point lead. 49-44. ohio, his lead is a couple of points higher, 53 to 43. florida, on identical, 49-44, to what it is in virginia. all of these three states have the president sitting at 49 or 50. all of them have his job approval sitting at 49 or 50. and all of them for the first time since we've been polling in these swing states have the right track/wrong track above 40%. that's the first time we've s

that right. >> wow. welcome back to "hardball." that was michelle obama speaking at the congressional black caucus this saturday night. she was referring to the concerted effort since 2010, of course, to make it more difficult to vote, especially minorities. this map shows the 17 states where laws have been passed since then making it tougher to vote now than it was in the last -- harder than the last election. so this year it's even more important that everyone who is eligible to vote i think get registered to vote and fight for that right to vote. today is national voter registration day in this country. it's a two-pronged effort to get people registered and make sure people know what sorts of documentation they need to vote on election day or earlier. marc morial is the president of the urban league and sponsored the national voter registration day itself. victoria defrancesco soto is an nbc latino contributor. i want to talk, marc, thank you so much for coming on. here is your chance to make the case to people who might be disillusioned or discouraged because they've heard about all the

it when michelle obama first entered the arena. she took a look to see what it would look like from the stage. and two weeks ago, who would have thought that weather would threaten to completely disrupt these carefully laid plans. and of course it did. it canceled one night of the republican convention and forced the democratic convention inside. this is what topical isaac looked like from my hotel room. so as bill clinton said in 1988, in closing, if you need more proof that conventions still matter, they're still fun and are still fascinating, if you need more proof that you really can't touch this, i offer you this, mc hammer. see, conventions do matter. if you want to see more of these pictures, come visit our blog, we have more pictures there. worth looking at. all right. moving back now, one of the most inspirational stories from this year's u.s. open, it isn't from a tennis player. it's from military vet who has overcome the oddsputee and is now a ball assist taptan to. an amazing story. go to id you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that c

of barack obama's first-term record, and they are deploying him now in swing states, even more than michelle obama, he's probably the biggest asset they have. but life is long. you never know when you're going to end up, that these two men are now embracing to this extent. >> life is really long. >> you know, the president got a bounce at the convention, and it's arguable that clinton played a big part in that. we have this new pew research center poll that i found real estate interesting. it showed, when they were asking, what was the highlight of the democratic convention, 29% bill clinton's speech, 16% said the president's speech, and michelle obama's speech was at 15%. so does that also mean that there is a downside to having president clinton -- >> oh, you mean overshadowing -- you know, he -- everybody knows hays not the candidate. i think he's a great character witness for the candidate. i think there was a dangerous dangeat the convention of that kind of a result, because you want your candidate to shine, not the person who is testifying on your behalf to shine. but i think right now

for the president with all of this talk. you had michelle obama talking about what the president believes in and who he cares about. president clinton explained the past. now it is just ready for barack obama to explain what he will do in the future. if this convention has a rhythm, it has a direction, it has an excitement. i think it is great, and i think i can't predict whether there will be a big bounce after it, but i would bet the predicate for a gradual ascension of the democratic ticket in november. >> every american did not watch it, though. >> unfortunately. >> my question would be do they take what bill clinton did in some ways sort of prof sorrial. >> the scene, and you go to black churches and they go preach, baby, preach, to the minister. this is teach, baby, teach. he was teaching america. >> does he take that on the road literally with a white board and says you have heard about medicare. here. >> i talked to him. >> here is the facts, here is what's really going on. >> i talked to the president before the speech for quite a bit, and first he put a lot of effort into it. it sounded li
